Is the liberal system universally applicable? Is despotism a benighted remnant of the past or can it develop into new forms? The bitter irony of the despotic abuse to which this book was put demands redress by renewed access to Joly’s liberal, anti-despotic thought. John Waggoner has made this possible for English-speaking readers. Hassing A fair and timely reassessment of one of the earliest and most acute analysts of modern despotism.
This book has lessons for all who love free government. Faulkner In addition to teaching us about znd permanence of the possibility of tyranny, and its perverse new forms in modernity, Joly compels us to wonder whether our liberalism or Machiavelli’s is truer.
Azure Joly’s work is a briliant account of modern depotism, and of the vulnerability of republicanism to a Machiavellianism aware of the manipulability of popular mechanisms. Joly’s updating of Machiavellianism deserves to be read as a prophetic and unwittingly influential document. Having detailed the despotism of its own century and mongesquieu contributed to that of the century to come, machiaevlli in can help our century to learn to formulate an adequate response to the all-too enduring voice of tyranny.
The Review of Politics John Waggoner has done all of us a tremendous service by making betwene in English the text of Maurice Joly’s Dialogue, as well xialogue a penetrating analysis of this neglected work. His insight allows us to better understand the origins of both totalitarianism and anti-Semitism in the twentieth century.

The Machjavelli in Hell between Montesquieu and Machiavelli is the source of the world’s most infamous literary forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Waggoner’s work vindicates a man who was neither an antisemite nor a supporter of the kind of tyrannical politics the Protocols subsequently served and presents Maurice Joly, once much maligned and too long ignored, as one of the nineteenth century’s foremost political thinkers.

This book is a hard read, as it dialoge written in another time when sadly folks were actually more literate than today.
But it is a “Must Read” for anyone who is concerned or outraged by the book “Protocols of the learned elders of Zion”, a demonized, witch hunt, stolen, plagerized, twisted version of THIS book, which is in truth a clever satire on the Government of Napoleon III.
It has transcended and outlived that era, and is a “How-To Book” of conquest: And somewhere along our timeline someone picked this book up and said, “Yes, We can do that”.
If you look around America jontesquieu, especially at education, entertainment, and sports you will see the principles stated in BOTH the above books being carried out nearly to the letter by unseen mqchiavelli acting covertly but most surely, and not for the benefit of the majority. Read this book, and that stolen piece of hate also. And look around and compare. It surely is being done to us all right berween.
Worldwide Evil and Misery is a good follow-up read.
Joly’s work is important. It is almost prophetic. Waggoner does an excellent job and I thank him mightily for allowing us access to this text. The commentary is a bit extensive, as I did not look forward to reading it upon completion of the consuming Dialogue.
However, it is helpful, necessary and worth getting through. I had not read “The Prince” nor “Spirit of the Laws” prior, but had ebtween understanding of them. Needless to say, next are they on my list.
monteaquieu My motivation for picking this one up was the “Protocols” scandal. Those especially for which the Dialogue proved a heavy and indirect influence vis a vis the forged “Protocols”. Perhaps it makes sense such a telling tome remains obscure, as the masses seem to prefer their dose of soma McDonalds, iPods, TV The elite are accused of running an evil program. They seem to follow a plan; why not. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a document based on this book. Monhesquieu personally noted all the ” same text” in both books.
Same style of penmanship. A plan of action is described by Machiavelli to over run a whole people. Examples are, control the press, lie through your teeth, scream injustice, kill the opponent if need. I don’t know if the Zionist actually use this.
Anyway, it is a strange read. Not a pretty subject but very interesting. I read this book while researching the “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.
Maurice Joly: Dialogue in Hell: Table of Contents
In any event, this is a captivating tale of a conversation between Machiavelli counselor to despots and Montesquieu philosophical and political father of the U.
Machiavelli claims to be misunderstood but as the dialogue progresses it seems painfully evident that he is generally not. While Machiavelli and Montesquieu both claim to be followers of Christ, it becomes clear to everyone but Machiavelli that he operates out of self-interest rather than the good of society. His self-delusion is phenomenal and is readily seen in politics today.
Betweeh book is obscure, true, but I found it to be a page-turner. Do not pass judgment on machiavelli book because someone later used it for anti-Semitic purposes.
The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu – Wikipedia
There is nothing anti-Semitic in this original tale. The reason why you see such a high price tag on this book [ Louis was elected president of France in in an election that was probably more legitimate than ours in The Constitution of the French Republic limited a president’s term to four years. Louis was able to convince his parliament to extend this so Louis would have time to implement his machjavelli.
Louis then staged a coup d’etat and seized dictatorial powers, passing new constitutional statutes masking his power and Louis reigned France as a dictator for 20 more years. Due to the new century and the militant foreign policy of the neo-cons, today’s America is in this same position.
Following are passages in the “Dialogues” that run parallel to the political tactics of today: In a carefully crafted message to the people, I will show that we were in a crisis situation”. I haven’t yet done so but I can I’ll let you live, on one condition, that you don’t try to block my progress or descredit my power I reserve to myself or my agents the right to judge when I am being attacked If there are ten in dialgoue category, I shall have twenty pro-government”.
They will defend my acts unreservedly. Silence about such things, rather than noising them about, is more respectful of public decency”. For several months, each of my newspapers will play upon the public mind diaoogue their own fashion and then recommend a course of action.
One fine morning, this course of action is officially adopted”.
When individuals are wronged mnotesquieu government agents performing their duties and bring them before the courts, judges must answer them thus: Public opinion would become so tame that total reliance would be placed on the official opinions of the government for the meaning of the law.
At certain moments, when there is a good reason to fear that some controversy may arise over some point of law, the government will declare as an advisory between that the law applies to this or that situation or that the law extends to this or that case”.
In the meantime, I would pull the strings of a sham opposition, clandestinely enlisted to my cause”.
